The real estate company Godrej Properties intends to introduce residential projects valued at Rs 300 billion this fiscal year in prominent cities such as Delhi, Gurugram and Noida. This initiative aims to attain a 20% increase in sales bookings, in line with the company's projections. Pirojsha Adi Godrej, the CEO of Godrej Properties, stated that they had provided sales booking guidance of Rs 2,700 billion for the current fiscal year, reflecting a 20% growth from the high base in 2023-24.

Pirojsha mentioned that, apart from launches and sales, the company planned to persist in acquiring land parcels for future development and enhance project deliveries. He stated that the substantial business development (land acquisition) carried out in previous years under favourable terms enabled it to increase bookings by 84 % to Rs 2,252 billion in 2023?24 and emerge as the largest publicly listed real estate developer in India by sales. Recently, Godrej Properties announced its highest-ever quarterly profit, with earnings increasing by 14% annually to Rs 4.7 billion in the March quarter. This marked an improvement from a net profit of Rs 4.1 billion in the same period last year.
